LIVE from the NYPL 2010

In CREATE DANGEROUSLY: The Immigrant Artist at Work, Edwidge Danticat draws on her Haitian background, experiences as an author and comments from colleagues in art, literature, photography, and journalism, to address these and other important questions:

• What is it to be an artist?
• What is it to be an immigrant?
• What is it to be both—working outside of your homeland and creating art, literature, film, photography that strives to bring specific truths to the world?
• What is it to be simultaneously celebrated for drawing attention to human rights issues and vilified for revealing the worst about your homeland?

Edwidge is joined in conversation by Paul Holdengräber, Director of LIVE from the NYPL.
